Vandercook not staying engaged in print

Hi. I’m hoping someone here can help me figure this out!

I am printing on a Vandercook 320G, and I’m having trouble with it staying engaged in PRINT. Is it possible to over oil it? The bar that runs in front of the cylinder (sorry I don’t know the term for this bar), that rotates as it engages into print, rotates back once I hit the form and thus not leaving the impression that I’m trying to achieve. I’m wondering if I’ve over oiled it and I can see a little oil seeping from around the end of the bar.

Would the cold weather have any impact? I’m keeping it in my garage in Canada, and it’s frikin’ cold, but I heat up the garage when I need to use it.

Any advice?

Thanks in advance!
